Forest Young

Prior to joining Wolff Olins, I led design at West alongside Allison Johnson — former Apple CMO, creating categories for the world’s most promising early stage companies. Earlier in my career, I served as Interbrand’s Senior Creative Director, supporting a portfolio of critical technology accounts including AT&T, Google, Microsoft and Vine.

My work has been exhibited at MoMA, the Royal Ontario Museum, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and at international biennials. I enjoy writing about the intersection of design, technology and culture for TechCrunch, VentureBeat and Grafik and am a speaking alum of SXSW, Yale GreenLight and Icograda.

I earned a BS in Human Development and Fine Arts from Cornell University and an MFA from Yale University where I was awarded the School of Art’s Mark Whistler Prize.
